I replaced it to dot.

Now my tv-out ( works 
with "video=DVI-I-1:1280x1024-24 at 60e video=9-pin.DIN-1:1024x768-24 at 60e"

I am still wondered why UMS detects TV but KMS does not.

Do you know if DRM maintainers will rename connector name or which 
bootloader treats spaces correctly? lilo, grub2?
